Attorney for Quintez Cephus files motion to dismiss charges
The attorney for Wisconsin wide receiver Quintez Cephus has filed a motion to dismiss one of the sexual assault charges filed against him earlier this week, claiming to have proof of his innocence.
Jon Brockman of The Daily Cardinal reported that Cephus’ attorney claims to have evidence that the alleged victims were impaired from alcohol on the night of the incident.
Cephus has been charged with second-degree sexual assault of an intoxicated victim and third-degree sexual assault earlier this week. He appeared for his initial court hearing on Thursday morning.
“Quintez is innocent,” Kathleen Stilling, an attorney for Cephus, said. “We want all the facts to come out to establish the truth. This criminal complaint is a slanted, one-sided version of the events.”
A preliminary court date was set for Sept. 6 for Cephus. He has been suspended from all football activities by Wisconsin.
